Saor Alba Posted January 31, 2010 Report Share Posted January 31, 2010 My previous week for coin finds was lackluster, I went through two boxes of cents for a total of 5.000 cents and only turned up a measly 11 wheats and not a lot of pre-1982 bronze only about 1/4 of the coins were pre-1982. Here is a listing of the total finds from those two boxes: Wheats 1910 beat up, but a 100 year old coin! 1929 1930 1946 - a nice red BU coin 1946-D 1948 1951-S 1953-D 1956-D 1957-D S Mints 1969 x 3 1970 1971 1974 Canada GVI 1940 1941 1946 QEII YH 1960 1962 x 6 1963 x 2 1964 x 6 1976 Centennial And that rounded out the previous week. Sort of ho hum except for the 1910 and the 1946 that was BU and well sort of the 1951-S. Now on to this last week. On Wednesday I was buying a soda for my son, and when I got the change back from the clerk I heard a higher sounding pitch in the clinking of the coins she was handing me. I thought to myself, oh great, she is handing me a Canadian 25 cent coin - I really don't like getting Canadian coins. I looked at the change briefly and determined there was no Canadian 25 cent coin, rather it was George in my paw. And he was dated 1963, and his edge had none of that narsty coppery look, rather he was looking right 90%. A good start to a week. So yesterday whilst getting dosh for the obligatory hockey game on Saturday night I sauntered into my local banking institutions where the nice young ladies are always very accommodating to mine numismatic pursuits. I asked if they had any pre-1970 halves, and surely - a 1967 peaked out from the drawer. Then I bought a box of cents again, and this one was much better than the last two. In face nearly 1/2 of this box was pre-1982 bronze, and my best box for wheaties ever: 1929 - another one and this one is about VF 1937 1941 1944 x 2 1945-D 1950 1950-D x 2 1953 1953-D 1954-D x 2 1955 1955-D x 2 1956 1956-D x 6 1957-D x 4 1958-D x 2 S Mints 1969 x 2 1971 1974 Canada QEII YH 1958 1961 1962 x 2 1964 1967 Centennial x 2 So finally a decent coin find week, two silvers, and 34 wheats.
